NOARUS (Νόαρος), a river of Pannonia, into which, according to Strabo (vii. p.314), the Dravus emptied itself in the district of Segestice, and which thence flowed into the Danube, after having received the waters of another tributary called the Colapis. This river is not mentioned by any other writer; and as it is well known that the Dravus flows directly into the Danube, and is not a tributary to any other river, it has been supposed that there is some mistake in the text of Strabo. (See Groskurd, Strabo, vol. i. pp. 357, 552.)
